Starbucks Ditches Jewish Group From Anti-Bias Training Over Non-Support of BLM

Published

on

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL for short), a group dedicated to combatting anti-semitism in the United States has been dropped from an anti-bias training session put on by Starbucks.

The session was due to be put on next month, but the coffee giant faced severe backlash from activists for having ADL as part of the activity, so they’ve opted to boot them from playing a role in developing the training that will be held on May 29.

The reason why?

They don’t support the anti-Semitism coming out of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Here’s more from The Hill:

Starbucks committed to closing most of its stores for an anti-bias training day after a viral video showed two black men being arrested at a Philadelphia Starbucks while waiting for a friend without purchasing anything. The ADL was originally part of the company’s team developing the curriculum for the training.

Activists criticized Starbucks for involving the ADL over the organization’s support for Israel and failure to endorse the Black Lives Matter movement. The group announced in 2016 that it would not fully endorse the movement over some leaders’ “anti-Israel — and at times anti-Semitic — positions.”

Tamika Mallory, an organizer of the Women’s March, posted on Twitter that the ADL is “constantly attacking black and brown people,” and criticized Starbucks as “tone deaf” for involving the group.

Black Lives Matter D.C. accused the ADL of being “ultra pro-cop.”

Starbucks said in an April 24 press release that the ADL would be consulted on “longer-term changes,” but did not name the group or its leaders in the section on the May 29 training.

Riley, the spokeswoman for Starbucks, has denied booting ADL over the pressure the company has received.

So fighting racism and bigotry is only acceptable, praiseworthy, and celebrated so long as the objects of said fight aren’t Jewish? That’s more or less the message being sent by Starbucks’ decision to remove the ADL from the training session.

This may not have been what they intended, but it’s certainly the way it looks.

Not reaching out to this group appears to be a glaring inconsistency in the company’s race policies, but then again, inconsistency is really the only thing consistent about liberalism.

A very sick and twisted individual is sending out letters to those who are supporters of President Trump in the state of New Hampshire, threatening to burn their homes to the ground if he happens to lose the election but doesn’t concede. Local news outlets reported that the letter has been sent to various homes in the the town that have been displaying support for Trump. Here’s what the letter said via Daily Wire: Dear neighbor. You have been identified by our group as being a Trump supporter. Your address has been added to our database as a target when we attack should Trump not concede the election. We recommend that you check your home insurance policy and make sure that it is current and that it has adequate coverage for fire damage. You have been given “Fair Warning.” Always remember, it was “you” that started this Civil War. Be prepared to face the severe consequences of your pre-emptive actions against democracy. Brookline police Chief Bill Quigley confirmed two Trump supporters in his town also received the letter. “”I was kind of quite shocked that anyone would send a letter out with that type of threat,” he admitted. Quigley said he alerted the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, adding that the perpetrator could be charged with a serious crime. He explained, “Not only with us, with criminal threatening. It’s on a felony level, because of the threat of burning homes down and causing injury, but it could also be with the postal inspectors, something on the federal level.” “I was very taken aback. This is my home. You’re not supposed to threaten my home. I’m very worried in the sense that this is going on in my town,” Milford resident Kelly told the press. Milford is a small town with a…

Matthew McConaughey Tells Americans To ‘Embrace’ Results Of 2020 Election ‘Whichever Way It Goes’

Published

Actor Matthew McConaughey has a message for Americans ahead of the 2020 presidential election and to be honest, it’s one you probably wouldn’t have guessed would come from someone with his amount of Hollywood clout. We’re all so used to raging liberals just hating on the president for no logical reason that when someone from the entertainment industry actually offers some sort of reasonable response to the political madness of our time it takes you off guard. According to McConaughey, regardless of which way the election works out, Americans should “embrace” it. via Fox News: McConaughey, 50, promoted his new book “Greenlights” on “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday and spoke about his motto: “When faced with the inevitable, get relative.” Applying that motto to the race between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, he said, “It’s not inevitable who’s going to win.” “After that happens, whether it’s an incumbent or whether it’s Biden, after it happens is when it’s time to get constructive and not be in denial,” McConaughey stated. “It’s time to get constructive and not deny the fact of whatever’s happened and embrace the situation,” he said speaking about the future president. “Whoever is going to be commander in chief and president of the United States of America, that’s not something, hopefully, that we’re going to deny or be able to argue,” the actor told the “Fox & Friends” crew. “I hope it’s a clean election,” McConaughey went on. “Whichever way it goes I hope it’s clean and that there’s no debate.” Now, embracing it doesn’t mean just going with the flow completely and not holding whoever wins up to the standards of morality and the Constitution. But it does mean not being a crybaby and throwing a fit, burning neighborhoods to the ground and looting…
